EMC Open Replicator for Symmetrix is a data migration and mobility application delivering non-disruptive, fast, simple, and open operation. Open Replicator uses the high performance Symmetrix array to move data to and from other EMC or third-party arrays using existing SAN/WAN infrastructure.
With Federated Live Migration, all migrations to a Symmetrix VMAX system are completely non-disruptive at the storage and host/application level. For organizations using virtual and thin technologies, Open Replicator’s zero space reclaim feature quickly and easily reclaims a volume’s allocated but unused capacity during a migration.
Open Replicator for Symmetrix is:
High performance - uses the powerful EMC Symmetrix array as the movement engine
Highly flexible - push/pull data to/from EMC and third-party systems
Non-disruptive - migrations using FLM keep applications online throughout the entire migration
Virtualized - full support for thick-to-thin, thin-to-thin, and thick-to-thick migrations
Space saving - zero space reclaim gains back valuable allocated but unused capacity during migration
